Appeal ruling favoring Abu-Jamal smacks US Supreme Court

The federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals, in a stunning smack at the
U.S. Supreme Court, has issued a ruling upholding its call for a new
sentencing hearing in the controversial case of convicted cop-killer
That’s the view of five federal judges in a case involving Kevin Cooper, a black man in California who faces lethal injection next year for supposedly murdering a white family. The judges argue compellingly that he was framed by police.
